Save the Evidence August Newsletter Released by Woodland Cultural Centre With Project Updates and What’s Coming Up
The Save the Evidence campaign is an initiative launched by the Woodland Cultural Centre to raise awareness and support for the restoration of the former Mohawk Institute Residential School building. The vision is to turn the building into an Interpretive Historic Site and Educational Resource. The Mohawk Institute building itself is only one of a handful of Residential School buildings left standing in Canada and the only one in Ontario that offered guided tours until its closure for repairs.
